THU S DAY. OCTOBER 27, 195'5



Give Clues
AOn Killing
CHICAGO (P) - New evidence
was uncovered yesterday that
three school boys whose naked
bodies were found in a forest pre-
serve woods Oct. 18 may have been
slain two days earlier in a prairie
two and a half miles away.
A man and woman gave separ-
ate but corroborating accounts of
hearing cries and muffled screams
coming from a quarter-mile-square
prairie on Chicago's Northwest
Side just before midnight Oct. 16.
Mrs. Dolores Wisilinski, 29, who
resides near the prairie at Hig-
gins and Octavia, said she was
alarmed by screaming about 11:30
p.m. that Sunday and heard a
boy cry, "Oh no, don't do that."
Anthony F. Walloch, 75, a re-
tired engineer who also lives in
the area, said three series of
screams emanated f r o m. the
prairie. The last time, he said,
the voice was hoarse and it sound-
ed like someone pleading for mer-
__ cy.
He said he peered from his win-
dow, but could see nothing be-
cause of darkness.
The vacant tract, devoted to gar-
bage dumping and crossed by a
couple of paths used as lovers'
lanes, is northwest of Robinson's
Woods where the bodies were
The Chicago public schools,
meanwhile, cooperated in widen-
ing the search for the killers of
Anton Schussler, 11; his 13-year-
old brother, John, and Robert Pet-
erson, 14.
Circulars containing sketches of
the boys in the clothing they last
wore-will be distributed among stu-
dents and pupils in the eight high
schools and 78 elementary schools
in the district beting scoured for
School authorities said the pu-
pils also will be questioned indi-
vidually or in small groups, but
only in the presence of their par-
ents. Five juvenile officers were
assigned -to the questioning.
The victims' clothing has not
been found.
In an effort to come up with a
lead, police also enlisted the aid
of utilities workers and county
highway employes. Linemen, main-
tenance men, and road workers
will search culverts or other places
where the missing clothing may
have been secreted.
The boys were last seen alive on
the night of Oct. 16. They at-
tended a loop movie, visited a
r bowling alley on the Northwest
Side and then vanished.

LANSING ((A')) -- Republican
legislative leaders yersterday an-
nounced a nine-point traffic
safety program they will try to

can Caucus Chairman; Carleton

Marines Hold
Meeting Here
An organizational meeting of a
Volunteer Training Unit of the
U.S. Marine Corps on campus was
held at 7 p.m. yesterday in the
Law Club.
"The unit is primarily for those
interested in military law," Cap-
tain George T. Fuller, the com-
manding officer said. "This is a
small unit which meets in infor-
mal sessions once each week to
discuss various aspects of military
law," he said.
"Specifically the aim of the
group is to study the Uniform
Code of Military Justice in regard
to controversial issues, J. T. Pen-
dergast, '55L, the company clerk
said. "Case studies are often used
to good advantage, for instance,
last year we debated the problem
of a man falling asleep on front
line guard duty and the difficulty
of proving the case. We found
that two witnesses were needed
and the man's gun and cartridges
must be taken away."
The group would welcome sev-
eral more Marines so that they
will be assured of being officially
recognized again this year. "The
main advantage of joining the
unit is that reserve and retirement
credits are earned.
"We can assure that members
will collect enough points to stay
on the Marine promotional list,"
Capt. Fuller said. "Joining our
group is one way of maintaining
your status in the ready reserve,"
he said.
"We are particularly interested
in Marines, but members of other
services are welcome," Pendergast
said. Anyone interested may call
